Yeah, while I use Vim and it's got support, most of what I do
interacts with unicode stuff as escaped rather than in-line.  In
python, it's things like u"\u20AC" or in HTML/XML using one of the
escaping variants:  € or € or even €

So I don't feel particularly hampered even if/when I get stuck with
an editor that only speaks lower-ASCII.

That's why I considered it merely "nice to have" rather than
"essential".
